Holding the Police Accountable

How does discriminatory policing affect us?

  • Nigeria in New York, NY said: I feel it is absurd that my teenage son who is at the top of his class, a great athlete, and artistic child can be stopped for no reason at all. O wait the reason is that he is a black man child. My husband and I go to great pains to make sure that he is not travelling outside of our neighborhood without us and have had to get him a NYS Non-Drivers Identification just so that he would have some form of identification on him in the event that he is stopped. He is 15 years old. This illegal practice must stop!

  • Channie in Hollis, NY said: This practice has to stop. My son was stopped, frisked and arrested even though he did not have any drugs on him. He was released the very next morning after a judge found the arrest unwarranted. The officer kept apologizing because he knew the stop was unwarranted. Now my son has his finge prints in the system, which I believe is the real reason behind this policy. We must put an end to this policy.

  • Nishell in Yonkers, NY said: I live in Harlem with my boyfriend, along with his roommate from Senegal. His roommate is black, and has been stopped and frisked multiple times and arrested once for having a small amount of weed on him. My boyfriend and I are white, and have never been stopped and frisked while out together. However, my boyfriend was stopped and searched by police while hanging out with his roommate in Times Square. Neither of them had anything on them. I am convinced there is subtle racism at play here, as my boyfriend's roommate is from Senegal and had no prior issues with the law before coming to America.
